The Holy Shroud will be on display in the Cathedral of Turin

In Spring of 2015, the Holy Shroud will be displayed once again in the Cathedral of Turin. It's a surprising move since the relic is shown only in special occasions. The exhibit has been approved by Pope Francis, as a way to mark 200 years since the birth of St. John Bosco, father and teacher of the youth. ;

The exact dates of the exhibit are unknown at this point, but the Archbishop of Turin, Cesare Nosiglia, says the Holy Shroud will be on display for roughly 45 days, sometime between the Easter season and mid August 2015. He also says, he's hoping Pope Francis will visit the Cathedral to directly see the Shroud and pray before it. ;

The Shroud is a piece of linen cloth that wrapped the body of a crucified man. According to tradition, it was used to wrap the body of Jesus Christ. ;
